If you're looking for a classical Parisian hotel in a great location, the Madison Plaza will be your place. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a corner room overlooking the Place de la Madeleine that was clean, adequately spacious, quiet and well-furnished, perhaps to excess as we found the extra little table and chairs more impediment than help. We noted that other hotel guests had put the extra chairs out in the hall. The reception desk personnel were polite and helpful. The location speaks for itself--very near the Metro, near deluxe shopping, and near the Garnier and the Olympia. We had stayed on the Left Bank many times and wanted a different neighborhood to explore. This hotle was the right choice.
